CMF Spikes Rock!

During this past week, I decided to experiment with the CMF ads Spike advertising feature to see if I get a boost in traffic.

For those who don't know, a CMF member can purchase 50 Spikes for $0.20. Each spike is worth a single visit from a participating member. After you receive 50 visits, the spikes are gone.

In my case, a set of spikes lasted one day, so I kept buying Spikes for each of the past 7 days.

To my surprise, I discovered that: CMF Spikes Rock! Nearly 40 of the 50 spike visits were registered as actual visits by Google Analytics. By comparison, very few of the Adgitize visits are registered.

Thus, I will probably continue to purchase Spikes for a while as this advertising tool helps to increase my blog's traffic.

Thanks CMF,

  1. Hi,

    Google Analytics doesn't register a lot because many people have it blocked. The best way to make comparison is to have a non-javascript based statistics system to cross reference your visitors. You'll find your statistics to be much more reliable as well.

  2. Hi,

    Please contact me, the email I have no longer works. I need to update your AFTR information so you'll receive updates.

    Thank you.

  3. yeah it converts into traffic but take a look at your bounce rate and the sales conversion or ad clicks. No improvement at all. Or I guess it's only me who's experiencing this one?
